The Spatial and Regional Economics research group, ECONRES was first approved on July 12, 2007 -and renewed on December 2018- as one of the “Consolidated Research Groups” of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in the Social Sciences area (SOC, E-027). This team is devoted to the development of new models/methods in spatial econometrics/statistics for applications in regional/urban economics and business administration. The ECONRES group imitates the academic quality and friendly environment of the Regional Economics Appliations Laboratory (REAL) and some of its members are part of the the EU-REAL Network.
